(b) The inclusion and the exclusion criteria. To determine which article and journals were to be included in the study process, all the research hits were viewed and screened and after these articles were examined for the relevance and the possibility of them being included in the study. Those articles which were potentially relevant were then read thoroughly fully and then analyzed fully to determine the possibility and the eligibility for them to be included in the final inclusion. Those articles that seemed not to provide enough relevant studies on the use of LLLT for treatment of AGA were excluded from the list (Lanzafame et al., 2013). Articles and journals were marked as eligible for inclusion if they at least satisfied two of the following criteria
• In the article, there were adults included in the study of the Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)
• The article in its study investigated at least one type of the low level laser technology (LLLT)
• The article must be have been written in English for us to critically review it.
• The article must have been written on or before 31st December 2016.
